About us

Erik and Adla van Riessen & Werner Harsta are the 3 faces behind Portula: Erik and Adla are Scandinavia connoisseurs, and they know this region like the back of their hands. Erik and Adla have a holiday home of their own in Norway, and love going there. So they know from personal experience what it is to dream of having your own holiday home in Scandinavia, but also to see that dream become reality.

Whilst Erik looks after the Dutch market, Werner is responsible for the German and English speaking markets. Werner gradually fell under the spell of all the great things that Norway has to offer. In the end this led Werner to swap his years of International experience in the chemicals industry for Portula. Besides Werner’s passion for languages and cultures, Werner brings with him his love of nature and engineering.
